While most of us are pulling out our heavy black coats and trying to combat Melbourne’s unpredictable winter, the girls from Thursday Sunday have been dreaming up light and white creations for their spring summer 2012/13 collection.

Their signature structured, monochrome designs have this time been interspersed with a colourful fern print. While this is a divergence from their typical minimalist style, the prints – paired with classic shades of white – do more to create a symphony than disparity. This is the first time that the two friends and collaborators, Mara Tonetti and Iris Cuaresma, have incorporated print into their designs and we’re very glad the flora-patterned cotton caught their eye.

In addition to their classic white shirts and tailored grey marl pieces, a burnt orange short-sleeve knit and teal skirt stand out as statement pieces in the considered collection. Indeed, Thursday Sunday’s ability to keep things simple, yet interesting, is always their best strength.

The reflective nature of the collection has a muted yet timeless quality that encapsulates the progression of the young label and perhaps hints at an exciting new direction.
